Movie Info

In this whimsical comedy, Maria (Arancia Cecilia Grimaldi) is a seven-year-old girl who, when her older brothers pick a bouquet of wildflowers for their mother, decides she can do better and makes plans to get some irises for Mom. However, Maria is a bit short on money, so she sets out to find her dad and borrow some change from him. But finding Dad's workplace turns out to be more complicated than she expected, and what she thought would be a quick errand becomes an all-day affair as she runs into a variety of eccentrics while looking for her father (and his wallet). Arancia Cecilia Grimaldi, the young leading lady of Iris, is also the daughter of Aurelio Grimaldi, the film's director. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Reel Film Reviews

When Iris catches its main character's disease, our opportunities for edification are needlessly but summarily forfeited.

...the top notch acting, especially by Broadbent, gives the near-clinical analysis of the effects of Alzheimer's a human face...
